Another teenager has died due to alleged Dengvaxia vaccine, the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) revealed.
PAO forensics chief Dr. Erwin Erfe identified the deceased as Aaron Dave Susana,15, of General Trias City, Cavite.
Erfe said Susana was “the 166th victim” of the dengue vaccine.
PAO plans to exhume for the remains of three other children who passed away after getting the Dengvaxia vaccine in Cebu.
Susana died last Monday (March 14).
He was inoculated with the vaccine in April and October 2016, then again on Sept. 27, 2017.
In 2018, the boy started to suffer nosebleeds, headaches, stomach aches and seizures, Erfe said.
In 2019, Susana eventually got paralyzed.
“The forensics examination are consistent with the findings on the 165 victims,” Erfe noted.
